In the above article

One by one, black New England Patriots players are refusing to visit Donald Trump’s White House posted by news website ¬†Identities.Mic ,

the site unwittingly(?) plays right into their hands.

The headline reads as if there is a constant feed of black players abstaining. So far there are two. Arguably that is one by one since it does equal two, but that statistic isn’t my point. The point is this headline is straight up misleading. So here we have another instance of irresponsible reporting. As much as I wish the entire team to boycott the visit I have to argue that doing the same as “them” doesn’t really create real change other than the pure definition of the word. It might cause change from one side to the other, which in turn can send the volley back. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

It’s an ugly scenario that smacks our emotions upside the head, but we’re being played by stories like this. In addition to the misnomer in the implied¬†number of black players, it is noted that it’s black players – as if only blacks can understand the problem that’s present with the POTUS. That continues the narration of racial split and continues the lie that white people are both, not effected by the crap coming out DC as well as not being bothered by it.

Consider this, my final point, that’s what they’re counting on. Keep the masses fighting with each other while we walk away with bank. It’s time we stop playing their way. It’s time for us to be the change we wish to see.
